    "sweet Serendipity" Beautiful Story

    I'm amazed at this song by this guy who won the American Idol competition. His song is all about his story and he really is the anti-american idol - so he went from sleeping on couches to winning the biggest competition in the world. It sounds like a first hand real time example...

    The effect by which someone accidentally finds something other then what they were looking for.That other thing, person, turns out to be of much more importance...entirely different too. My friend went to buy a new car and found a husband! The car salesman.

    Serendipity And Irony

    Have you ever read or heard something that you discounted at the time, but then years later you find it was a profound truth? I don't recall where I read it or who said it or even the exact wording, but the general idea behind what I read was the following "When you need a...

    There can be no doubt that serendipity exists and that is very important. The discovery of something you were not looking for is as normal as it is extraordinary. I have an eclectic mind and my phantasy makes me wander from one subject,or one field to another. Reading about...

    Serendipity.....

    I've seen a few boats with this name. And a few clubs. Why doesn't this group have more members? Perhaps because many do not even know the definition of "serendipity". I'm fortunate enough to say that serendipity has played a pleasant role in my life at times over the years. One...

    Because What Goes Around...

    I do believe in getting what you can out of what comes your way. Yeah I'm an opportunist. I don't think that 'everything happens for a reason' But I do think you can find 'reasons for everything'. Do you catch my drift? Cm
